VA-based Canvas has teamed with PayPal to enable businesses to seamlessly collect payment within any Canvas business app – helping businesses create customized payment processes and unlock the full value of mobile transaction data.
With PayPal’s mobile payments solutions now integrated into the Canvas platform, Canvas subscribers building and using mobile apps for a broad range of business processes – including customer invoices, work orders, retail sales and rental agreements – can now add mobile payment functionality as well, allowing them to authenticate and accept payments via mobile devices and create fully customizable payment processes. Using PayPal Here on the Canvas platform, business users can even accept credit cards and debit cards in person, plus track cash and check payments”right from a tablet or smartphone, whether they’re in their shop or on the road.
By linking mobile payments to Canvas’ cloud-based software service, insightful customer information can be stored and leveraged to change the way businesses interact with customers – not just at the point-of-transaction but also through the full customer lifecycle. For example, businesses can utilize transaction data during and after the point-of-sale to generate custom-branded digital receipts for retention and loyalty programs. These receipts can include unique content such as photos, coupons, social media calls-to-action, website URLs, and more.
Businesses each month submit and save more than 500,000 documents to the Canvas cloud, and there are now more than 15,000 apps in the Canvas mobile business application store – apps that can easily be downloaded, customized and shared by Canvas’ growing community of partners and subscribers.
